Seasoned stoners know that the way that you use cannabis can have a huge impact on what you get out of it. Regular cannabis use can make or break you, and it often comes down to the habits that you keep. One important habit to maintain with use is regular tolerance breaks. In this article, we are going to discuss what these breaks are and why big names in cannabis recommend them.

What is a Tolerance Break?

A tolerance break is a period of time that is designed to help your body reset from the use of a substance. Most commonly referenced by cannabis users, these little breaks can completely reset your cannabis experience through simple abstinence. During a tolerance break, you will refrain from using THC-based cannabis products (though some do this for all cannabinoids as well) to allow your body to reset for a period of time.

Why Are Tolerance Breaks Important?

The benefits of tolerance breaks certainly outweigh the inconvenience of temporarily abstaining from cannabis use — at least for recreational users. When you take a tolerance break, you are going to automatically lower your tolerance levels when it comes to weed.
